Pat­tern Notes

Cowl is worked top down. Top of cowl be­gins with a garter stitch tab and is worked back and forth like a tri­an­gu­lar shawl with a cen­ter “spine”; af­ter neck is joined, bot­tom of cowl is worked in the round.

Look­ing at the piece with the right side fac­ing and cen­ter-front garter stitch tab at the bot­tom as knit, the right half is worked in garter stitch with eye­lets that form di­ag­o­nal lines slant­ing from left to right; the left half is worked in stock­inette stitch with eye­lets that form di­ag­o­nal lines slant­ing from right to left. This pat­tern­ing con­tin­ues as es­tab­lished once the piece is joined and worked in the round.

Slip all mark­ers when you come to them.
